Power Craig - Field Recordings of Terrified and Delusional Nose-Pickers and Nail-Biters [MMM029]


Published May 6, 2006


Power Craig makes the quiet return for Illinois recluse Jonas Crenshaw. Jonas Crenshaw's Colossal Failure was a brilliant endeavour, but Jonas' fear of success all but buried the album. During a short hospital stay, he met Sam Gwin, a soundtrack writer for non-existent films.

For two years Jonas and Sam would meet and record sketches of songs, single parts, harmonies and random moments. Sam would piece these moments together, and add his own parts. The end result is remarkably beautiful.

Notes

The lyrics: Wait the way your fork clicks against your teeth reminds me fucking is shameful I hate your sister [too embarrassing to reveal] and the bodies fly over the road and the bodies fly across the yard stray dogs they ate my legs, arms, heart [unintelligible, indecipherable] failure.

Written, played, sung, yelped, recorded and nearly abandoned by: Sam Gwin and Jonas Crenshaw in less time than you'd expect in a very small room in the summer of 2004. Neither remembered to bring a bass guitar.

Additional vocals on "Archikudah (I am)" by K. Rhomber.
